Attorney Fails to Wear His Uniform in Court. What Will Judge Say? NY Medical Malpractice & Accident Attorney Gerry Oginski Explains

Every attorney wears a uniform. It's a standard uniform.

You see it in every court here in NY.

The attorneys all look the same.

The men are wearing a suit, shirt and tie. They typically wear black shoes. They typically carry a black briefcase.

If it's raining outside they will typically be wearing a long overcoat. On cold winter days an attorney can typically be found wearing a long black or dark navy overcoat.

There are obvious exceptions to this rule.

However, if you walk into any courthouse in New York you'll usually see an attorney wearing a “uniform.”

Just walking down the hallway, you can typically spot the attorneys compared to litigants and observers. It's because all the attorneys usually wear the same type of uniform.

What happens though if an attorney decides, for whatever reason, not to wear his uniform that day in court?

The results will not be pretty.
